With September almost here (scary that there’s only 4 more months left of this year) it is time to start thinking of what to pick out for our Autumn/Winter wardrobe. The most exciting time for fashion! I have compiled a few key pieces to incorporate into your A/W wardrobe and in my opinion these are key pieces and ones that I would like in my closet and will hopefully have in my closet.
Leather is and always will be a must in anyones wardrobe. It is sophisticated, classic and edgy. It doesn’t have to be a leather jacket but well that is definitely a must as well as leather skirts, tops and trousers. They have been around for a while now but this season try and get your hands on a pair of trousers. I know they are expensive but don’t worry leather looking ones are fine also.
Tartan, again, is a trend that seems to be here to stay. Tartan was everywhere on the runways and the high street is mad for it too. I wish now that I had bought the vintage tartan skirt at the last Shutterbug Vintage Kilo Sale!
If you have this in your wardrobe then you are lucky because dark florals are back and Saint Laurent have shown it exquisitely in their fashion show. They have grunged it up and made it so deliciously rock n roll.
VELVET AND LACE
A must every year, velvet and lace for me signifies Autumn/Winter. The darkness of it and also the delicateness of it. It will always be my favourite and I always just love the aesthetic it gives. Together it just oozes exquisiteness and every wardrobe should have it.
Statement trousers are a perfect addition to your wardrobe. Pairing it with a simple tee, plain top or an embelished/embossed top you will look effortlessly chic. Pairing it with the right footwear you’re on your way.
Now these are just my picks of what I think should be a must have in your wardrobe so if you think otherwise then I would love to know your opinion 🙂 What are your must haves for A/W ’13?
